Beau on the Move

Beau does love forest trails. (Photographically, we are back in Corvallis for the next three shots and then we return to the Cascades Fall Series.) I don't know what captivates me more in this shot, Beau flying down the trail, or that sky!

SUMPTER SHOOT - Just a reminder that I am in Eastern Oregon and probably won't have internet access until October 20.

NIKON D700 1/640 second F/9.0 ISO 200 45 mm (35mm equiv.)

My vote's on that cloud! That's one dark, mean looking thunder boomer. Although, Beau is kinda cute there.

Yup, that cloud with the foliage is just pretty darn great !
You could almost crop Beau out and give him a space all his own...he IS a cutie.

This is a superlative image Jack! Dark and foreboding in mood at the top with the great dark clouds...and so beautifully brightening up as you scroll down to see that cute lil doggie...most heartwarming!

It's certainly a shot with two tales (tails?)...the bottom shows such happiness in Beau running towards to you...just lovely...but that sky! How fearsome! What an interesting picture!

Great looks so somber, with that sky, till you scroll down, and see that cutie running on the trail!!! Hey, Corvallis hit the local newspaper this morning....about some folks who have been protesting the war for about 8 years now.........

I feel like this is a shot from the Wizard of Oz. The running away from the wicked sky above.

This is truly an amazing image.

I love it! When the image opened I said what a sky and landscape then I saw Beau, that face and posture made the shot complete.
Just like a teddy bear.
